Manoeuvring the vehicle from the mammoth space at the driving seat (it has overhead lockers and a fridge and the passenger sits a metre away!) will be unlike any other driving you’ve experienced before.
The first thing that will strike the person taking up this deal is the height of the lorry; it’s so high there are three steps to climb before the driver can get anywhere close to clambering into the cabin (apparently the sign of a good trucker is one who can get back into their cab with a coffee in one hand and not spill a drop).
Sitting in the driver’s seat is like sitting at mission control, except with panoramic views of the road ahead, sound systems and lockers overhead, and a lorry and 55ft long trailer in the wing mirror behind. Reversing round a corner suddenly becomes a lot more challenging.
Each driver will get 15 to 20 minutes at the wheel, and time sitting on the bench-style crew seat behind the driver as the others in the group take a turn to drive. We have 3 spaces.
